wondering about the installer

I am curious to know what JetBrains uses as the installer for their IDEA software, specifically on windows. Is it a custom, home-grown installer app? or is it some third-party app? I ask because I really like how easy it is to install IDEA and would like to use the same idea for a custom swing app.

Any insight would be awesome.

Thanks,
Christian

Hello Christian,

We're using NSIS: http://nsis.sourceforge.net/

idea for a custom swing app.

Any insight would be awesome.
